11:35 pm
[ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: thanks for coming. i like you already. [ cheers and applause ] hey, here's something i was thinking about. you know how in high school sometimes the students will vote for the weirdest kid in class to be prom king as a joke, and then so many people get in on the joke, the kid actually becomes prom king? well, anyway, donald trump won super tuesday. [ laughter ] 13 states, thousands of cnn
11:36 pm
been counted, and the big winners were donald trump and hillary clinton. google reported saying that the search phrase "how can i move to canada" jumped 350% last night. [ applause ] that's not a joke. [ cheers and applause ] by the way, the answer is, you can't. he's going to build a wall up there too. he's going to keep the mexicans out and the rest of us in. that's the plan. do you think in canada anyone ever threatening to move to america? i people like they don't. [ laughter ] trump and clinton, each won seven. bernie sanders won three states. ted cruz won two. his home state of texas and oklahoma. i think people in texas might be voting for ted cruz so he'll move to washington. cruz spoke to his voters last night. while for most people it would be hard to deliver a victory speech on the night you lost
11:37 pm
made some excellent points. >> this much is certain. january 20, 2017, will be president obama's last date in office. [ applause ] >> jimmy: yeah, that much is certain. but what else? >> and on that day, we will have a new president of the united states. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: so that's how it works. he's being replaced. it's all so interesting, the political process. weirdly the candidate who garnered a lot of the attention on super tuesday was one who's not even running anymore, new jersey governor chris christie. he flew all the way to florida to stand behind donald trump supporting him. and this is what people were commenting on. watch this. so throughout the speech, he looks genuinely miserable.
11:38 pm
of a supposedly bottom pasta bowl at olive garden. he looks as though someone just told him butterscotch causes cancer. [ cheers and applause ] what is that? what did donald trump do to him? he's standing there like theon from "game of thrones." dr. ben carson didn't win any states last night, but don't tell him. he slept through the whole thing. he released a statement today that he does not see a path forward to the presidency and will skip the debate tomorrow night. was he at the last one? if he does skip the debate, how will we know? even though he admitted he doesn't have a chance to win, he hasn't dropped out. he is still technically running for president, even though he said he has no chance to be -- the guy can't even figure out how to not run for president. ben carson, this is something i have noticed, his typical
11:39 pm
they give to a dead person. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] so ben carson is -- he's got his foot out the door, just like that, it's down to three. or four, if you count john kasich. anyway, after -- you know, the astronaut, scott kelly, returned home last night. he was in space for 340 days. nasa provided footage of the landing. it really is amazing that human beings are able to do that. >> scott kelly back on mother earth after 340 days in space. >> we're going to make american great again, folks. we're going to make it great again. >> and scott kelly has decided to go back to space. we have liftoff. [ cheers and applause ] >> he won't be home for five years. we have a couple of fun guests
11:40 pm
funny, and morgan freeman, who is phenomenal. he is here. the golden voice. he's the man who somehow is able to make penguins seem exciting. morgan freeman was at the oscars on sunday and presented the award for best picture. afterwards, at the end of the ceremony, watch closely here. >> this has been an amazing experience. congratulate all of our oscar winners. buy some girl scout cookies. >> there he is. give me some of those. and then he is like, goodbye. i am out of here. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: he snatched a whole stack of cookies from chris rock and beat it. i have to ask him about that. i know he was on "the electric company." i did not know he was the cookie monster too. this is a teachable moment. this is from a local fox affiliate in memphis, where viewers were treated to a story about a man who was arrested as a result of a variety of
11:41 pm
>> friday night, michael bennett was found by police lying near the street. police say his pants were down and shirt pulled over his head. police also noticed a bottle of whiskey partially consumed, inserted in bennett's rectum. they also found a crack pipe laying next to him. now bennett told police he does crazy things when he gets drunk. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: really? like what? i mean, he said he does crazy things. let's hear some of them. while we're on the subject of improper behavior, the nypd announced yesterday, the new york police department, said they'll no longer arrest people for drinking in public or urinating in public. see, we don't need donald trump to make american great again. it's already happening on its own. i guess the goal is to reduce unnecessary jailtime for low level offenders. and also to make riding the subway more of an adventure.
11:42 pm
you can now get drunk and pee on the street in new york. this is great news for kathie lee and hoda. it really is. and one more donald trump -- i know there's a lot of donald trump. but it seems to be all that anybody talks about every place i go, at all times. last night was a great night for donald, for his wife malaria, for his family, for all of the trumps. you know, after all that's happened over the past several months, people are finally coming to terms with the fact that he's probably going to be the republican nominee. and maybe even president of the united states. which would have been hard to believe this time last year. it's still hard to believe. but it's true. and so with that in mind, we took the liberty of compiling -- you know, he makes a lot of noises when he's speaking. he is a very unusual sounds coming out of his body. we set them to music. and the result is this donald trump-y version of "hail to the

[ laughter ] >> stick the mail in, and hold it.
12:03 am
>> jimmy: a substitute mail carrier. i never even realized they had those. >> i'm not going to get into trouble for telling that story, because it was the early '60s. >> jimmy: you should be fine. i don't think you even did anything wrong. >> i didn't really. >> jimmy: you know, the price of stamps just went down from 49 to 47 cents. do you still mail things? are you a letter writer? >> no. no, no. >> so you do not have interaction with your mail person? >> uh-uh. >> jimmy: you don't go out and get the mail yourself? >> i do not. i have people that work for me. they do all that kind of stuff. >> jimmy: wow, that's when you know you're a big shot. you don't have to go to the mailbox. >> jimmy, i'm a movie star. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: there's no arguing with that. you're working on a project that sounds very interesting to me. it's for nat geo. tell us a little bit about this.
12:04 am
the god project. it's the story of god, religion. >> jimmy: is this auto biographical? >> not at all. not at all. you shouldn't do that. [ laughter ] >> but we go all over the world to the religious hot spots. that is, where we know that religions got their beginnings, their starts, you know, different religions. so we went to egypt and to india and to turkey and to -- rome, all of these places, and talked to people about what it is, what it means. >> jimmy: do you feel like you learned something? >> oh, yes. i learned quite a lot. yeah. different religions -- all religions, for instance, have a creation story. all religions have a place for
12:05 am
something you can do. hindus, for instance, not really all that happy with the idea of reincarnation. i thought it was like an end in itself, but it isn't. reincarnation is -- if you're hindu, you have to keep coming back and trying to get it right. and you have to keep on until you do get it right. >> jimmy: when you do get it right, where do you go? >> you transcend. you become pure energy just like the other guy. >> jimmy: so theoretically, everybody left on this planet screwed up? >> if you're hindu. if you have a hindu belief. right. >> yes. >> jimmy: where did you learn to speak so beautifully? is it something that you worked on? or just from your family? >> i don't even know what you mean. >> jimmy: well, i tell you, i when i was a kid.
12:06 am
reader. and the way you spoke was -- it just sounded like -- it just sounded great. and i assume that you got that from -- i mean, the way i speak, is like that of a clown. so this is what i got from my family. whereas i assume your family -- you must have a -- i don't know. >> i went to school to be a -- to study how to be an actor. and in that school, los angeles city college, i had a voice and diction instructor who was very good at his job. and so you had to learn to speak and sound your final consonants, things like that. >> jimmy: so you actually learned something in college.
12:07 am
[ laughter ] >> well, i -- i was old. >> jimmy: how old were you in college? >> 22. >> jimmy: oh, wow, ja. yeah. you started college when you were 22 years old. >> yeah. but i only went for about 20 minutes, so -- >> jimmy: that was an intense 20 minutes. whatever you learned in that 20 minutes, worked out well. when we come back, we'll see a clip from your new movie. and i have something fun for to you do, if you would be so kind. we're going to go out on the street and have you narrate a person walking by on hollywood boulevard. morgan freeman is here. we'll be right back. [ cheers and applause ] hi. hi... i love your pants. thanks. these pants are really speaking to me. can i look at the back? ooooooooooooooh! do you even know what you have back there? give me your pants.
